Suton Yard Brush Spare Part Misery


Recommended Posts

When I received my Suton brush after winning it on Ebay I was a little annoyed to find a previous owner had glued the tow hitch to the body, as I had worked out you could have it in different positions. I had a look underneath, and there seems to be some circular retaining clip or spring missing.

Does anyone know where I can get one of these (short of pirating a complete one) or what is the best alternative? I looked for some small washers in my local Travis Perkins then a plumbers supply shop, but nothing would fit ..

The grip washer that pushes over the pin under the yard brush is the same ones that are on the Acrobat hay rake, handle on the Mule-dozer and quite a lot of other Britain's implements of that period with moving parts, if I think of any more they're on I'll let you know. The spring is easy to replace, cut down an old ballpoint pen spring.
